Jimmy Choo introduces men's and women's Pre-fall 2018 collection
May 15, 2018: Cosmopolitan and contemporaneous, Jimmy Choo’s Pre-Fall 2018 collection pulsates with urban kudos morphed with the brand’s signature glamorous spirit.
The durability of the D-ring belt anchors the collection with a pragmatic coolness and the ‘90s favourite is now reset in sophisticated camel and cedar wrapping around the ankle. Webbing is also tricked out in linear sky blue and red. Graphic colour flows through the threads of the collection with shades of lime, rose water and red, and unique, painterly disrupted stripe leather.
In Matilda and Mischa, assertive square and open toe respectively, technicality marries craftsmanship with the nuanced sculpting of a cone heel, and the ergonomic leather weaves follow the arch of the foot. Two-tone painted raffia and glossy patent trim lacerates the ladylike connotations finished with a decorative oversized diamanté round buckle.
The collection also welcomes back the legacy logo: “I Want Choo” bandied on sandal webbing, and emblazoned on trainers, signalling a new sophistication as the global street wear slipstream continues. Tonal jelly sandals have aquatic gloss and stylishly modelled with 3D technology creating a getaway go to style.
Thassia stands poised at 100mm in lustrous dark pink satin decorated with crystal nuggets. A strappy sandal now twisted in the modern woman’s direction. Easy to wear, elegant on the eye, Joni slides are minimally refined in black suede with gold trim, or shine on with stardust glitter, and brooch detail.
The bags are soft, supple, taking an easy shape. Calie’s “dumpling” silhouette neatly stows away red carpet essentials, gathered by a captivating pewter chain tassel and bracelet. Rocky rhinestones or metallic silver enthrall. The belted Lexie is an urban savior with a buckle up, side-swing and go style in nutmeg suede or soft grained calf leather. Stevie heralds the return of the hero hobo shopper, easy and relaxed in veritable fresh green suede.
Authority and functionality combine in the Jimmy Choo Men’s Pre-Fall 2018 collection. Steve McQueen serves as muse across styles. Introducing new slipper silhouettes Spencer & Saul, the Saul comes in gold liquid mirror leather, and the Spencer in shiny black calf with tonal ribbon attachment as well patent black with gold ribbon.
Foxley, Jimmy Choo’s signature tassled evening loafer are reinterpreted as individually informal solo pieces that embody the spirit of Pre-Fall 18 in navy, cacao and sand denim suede as well as black, ocean and cacao mesh perforated suede. The Marti loafer features a chevron-hemmed snaffle that echoes the buckle of Jimmy Choo’s signature Lockett handbag. It is presented in an assortment of soft nappa leather and coloured suede.
Orson, the boat shoe, is presented in croc printed dry suede with a contrasting white sole. Jett elevates the trainer to an unprecedented level of luxury and design and returns for Pre-Fall 18 in combinations of soft leather and ultra-soft suede in key colours of the season of ocean, sand and ginger.
The Cash low-top sneaker has depth of texture dressed in traditional fine suede in shades of navy, ocean, spice and sand. The Oakland’s profile is slim and sleek, the sole-shape ergonomically tapering, and the colour ways fundamental and arresting.
The Reed backpack returns in seasonally on-point fabrications including woven canvas and woven nylon in black and cacao shades.
